Now that we are well into August, it is crucial for franchisors to be aware that there are just three months remaining before the deadline for franchise disclosure documents to be finalised (31 October 2019).  Franchisors should similarly note that there are now only 2 months left to get your vote organised and finalised in relation to the auditing of your marketing fund, if you have one.

If you are an Australian franchisor with operations based on the usual financial year (ending 30 June), now is the ideal time for you to look at organising a timeline for these necessary tasks.

With this in mind, Holman Webb has compiled a 10-step guide to compliance, which we encourage all franchisors to follow.

Holman Webb Partner, Tal Williams speaks with Lawyers Weekly in this podcast about GDPR one year on, and what Australian firms can learn from the issues experienced by overseas businesses.
